After a long and courageous battle with a variety of heart and lung ailments, Linda passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of February 17. Born on November 26, 1941, Linda grew up in Lindenwold, NJ. She attended St. Lawrence grammar school and was a graduate of Camden Catholic High School. She was the daughter of John Earl and Mary (Tess) Le Bano. Linda worked in a number of fields before retiring in 2003 as a Child Support Enforcement Investigator for the State of New Jersey. It was appropriate that her last job was protecting the rights of children because her true focus and passion during her life were her three sons, daughters-in-law and twelve grandchildren. Linda loved spending time with her family, making extended visits to their homes, and vacationing with them, particularly at the Jersey Shore. She especially enjoyed their visits to her home in Mickleton, NJ where she moved after retiring. Prior to moving to Mickleton, she lived in Stratford for over 40 years.
Linda is survived by her three sons, Honorable William H. Bright, Jr. (Jennifer) of Columbia, CT, Ronald S. Bright (Pam) of Mullica Hill, NJ and Warren A. Bright of Hammonton, NJ. All three credit their mother and the values she instilled in them for any measure of success they have achieved in their lives. Linda is also survived by her grandchildren Vince, Chris, Kevin, Colton, Alex, Tim, Veronica, Dylan, Greg, Nicki, Garrett, and Caitlin. She also leaves behind her younger brother John (Jack) E. Le Bano, Jr. and other loving family and friends.
Relatives and friends are invited to greet the family on Friday between 10 - 11 AM at the Danks-Hinski Funeral Home, 125 N. White Horse Pike at South Ave., Lindenwold, Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 AM at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish, St. Lawrence Campus, Interment at Gate of Heaven Cemetery Berlin.
